If it walks like a memory leak and quacks like a memory leak, upgrade before you investigate a memory leak

Really, asking "what should replace Facebook" is putting things the wrong way around.

A more interesting way to ask the question is, "what did Facebook replace."

People used to build their own websites. People used to have blogs. People used USENET which was truly distributed and un-censorable.

Facebook and Google took the open internet and open standards and monetized and made everything crappy. Enough of that. Nothing should replace Facebook, it's done, stick a fork in it.

"Kubernetes Pods are mortal. They are born and when they die, they are not resurrected."

Just saw ASCIIFlow Infinity on HN (asciiflow.com/). It's super cool.

Even cooler? MonoDraw for OSX. It's like ASCIIFlow, but way more solid. It's $20, but DRM free.

Got a Arduino Ethernet shield for Christmas. Going to make it an ultra low power server.

Reverse engineering Fedora packages and backporting to CentOS. WEEEEEEEE

@tomasino, is that the romhacking.net group? I haven't seen this before, this is really neat! I think to start I'm going to try to re-create the collection I had as a kid (I still have most of them still but sold some over the years) but these modded roms look really cool!

The wall will start out with the following consoles: NES, SNES, Genesis, N64, Playstation and Playstation 2. From there, who knows what I'll add. Anyone have ideas?

Went to IKEA and got shelves to start building my wall of video games finally. Motivated me to get my NES back in working order. Easy fix, just needed to adjust the pins on the 72-pin connector. Played a lot of Super Mario Bros and ordered Final Fantasy and Dungeon Warrior on ebay. Can't wait for those to come in this week!
